Entertainment in Dublin


An essential part of Ireland’s (and Dublin’s, of course!) social life and a must for every visitor. In Dublin today there are basically two categories of pubs: the Traditional ones, and the Modern ones.


Music, be it traditional, pop, dance, is one of Dublin’s favourite night-time distractions. With many
new nightclubs opened in recent years it’s no wonder people flock from all over Europe to revel in the popular night spots of the city.


One of the traditional hubs of Dublin’s entertainment scene and also a growing one in today’s creative Irish society. Famous works by the greats are always to be found in theatres such as The Abbey, and The Gate.
